News from our Charity Partner Wellbeing of Women
In these uncertain times, it’s as important as ever to safeguard the future of women, girls and babies everywhere. As many of our clinical researchers are called to support the NHS front line response to COVID-19, we are working hard to make sure they can return to their research as soon as possible
We are extremely proud to be funding some of the best and brightest doctors and clinicians in women’s health and, whilst they help the fight against this pandemic, we will continue to raise awareness of their incredible work. For example, Dr Varsha Jain, who is researching causes of heavy menstrual bleeding that affects 1 in 4 women. Varsha’s research will be on hold whilst she works on the NHS front line and we are working hard to ensure her work and that of our other researchers can continue when this pandemic is over.
There are many ways you can support us from your home – here’s just a few ideas:
- Run a quiz with friends – full of fun facts on women’s health – download questions and answers here.
- Organise that big clear out you’ve been meaning to do for years and donate proceeds. – Virgin Money Giving & Ziffit can help with logistics.
- Sign up to a virtual race – like the Local Landmarks challenge or Running Woman – and fundraise online here.
